  1. Hi happyfanlgx, it seems like LJK is so loyal to a friend. It's unlikely to a big star like him to cameo in a certain show or whatever - but, due to his friendship with IU led to his special appearance on the new tvN drama "Hotel Del Luna". Regarding his role, wait & see TONIGHT! "Hotel Del Luna" will broadcast at 21:00 KST.
  2. 5 Actors Who Went From Second Leads to Main Our babies went through a lot! We have all been there, we are watching a drama and as it progresses the line between who is the main and the second lead blur. Thanks to this all of us have ended plenty, if not all dramas, with a major case of the second lead syndrome. This is when you root for the second lead actor to have a happily ever after with the main actress. We have decided to pick our top actors who went from a pat on the back to a happily ever after. We understand there are A LOT more, but these are the ones people seem to forget about. Kim Woobin Image Source: Instagram '@actorkimwoobin' Kim Woobin started acting in 2011, and he started being credited under his real name. He gave us major second lead syndrome in 'Heirs.' We knew he was not meant to finish with Park Shinhye in the back of our hearts, but we still wanted for them to end up together. Thankfully, he stopped being the second lead, and his now the main actor.

Park Hyungsik Image Source: Instagram '@phs1116' Park Hyungsik started his acting career in 2012 as was part of the cast of 'I Remember You.' He was our second lead on 'Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth.' He made it into our hearts slowly but sure, and at the end, we were waiting for him to not be cold porridge. He was able to have a happy ending in his drama 'Strong Woman Do Bongsoon.'

Choi Jinhyuk Image Source: Amino '@Livi' Jinhyuk has been acting since he was 20 years old after he won a KBS Survival Star Audition. He has since been in all different kinds of movies and dramas, if you turn on your TV, there's a 110% chance he will be in it. He has been an extra, a second lead, a main, back to second lead, honestly, we love how multifaceted he is. He touched our hearts as a second lead in 'Fated to Love You' and 'Ms. Panda' and 'Mr. Hedgehog.' But now he seems to be mostly playing leads, he has starred in 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Tunnel.' He was lead of 'Devilish Joy,' we are crossing our fingers, and hope he won't get second lead again.

  5. Hi hwonhwon, thanks for sharing the pictures. Was it his anniversary yesterday?
  6. Hi gumtaek, thanks for sharing this clip. For those new in K-pop here, "halmoni" is the Korean name for grandmother. Korean language uses a different alphabet from English. For that reason, it is sometimes spelled differently. Halmeoni is one such variation.

  11. *** I hope PSJ could get a special someone who could love & take good care of him in the future. ******************************************************************** Park Seo Joon Jokes About Why “Parasite” Director Bong Joon Ho Said He’d Want To Set Him Up With His Daughter During a recent radio show appearance, Park Seo Joon dished on working with director Bong Joon Ho on his award-winning film “Parasite”! On July 19, the actor appeared as a guest on SBS Power FM’s “Park Sun Young’s CineTown.” During the show, DJ Park Sun Young asked him about his cameo appearance in “Parasite,” which recently made history as the first Korean film ever to win the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. “‘Parasite’ is a hot topic these days,” said the DJ, before asking Park Seo Joon about the gift that his character gives Choi Woo Shik‘s character towards the beginning of the film. “Now that almost 10 million people have seen it, I think it’s okay to talk about this. Why did you give him that scholar’s rock?” Park Seo Joon responded, “Everything ended up happening the way it did because of that [rock]. I was actually surprised by how many people told me that. The people around me said, ‘It’s all because of you.'” The actor went on to talk about his experience working with Bong Joon Ho, recalling, “Director Bong Joon Ho is someone who is very generous with his praise. He said lots of nice things. More than anything, I was curious about what director Bong’s film set would be like. Although I only made a brief appearance [in ‘Parasite’], I got to see the film set, and I was happy to have been able to work with such great senior actors.” Park Seo Joon then revealed, “Director Bong told me that if he had a daughter, he’d want to set her up with me.” He jokingly added, “I think he said that because he doesn’t have a daughter.” However, he continued, “I think I would love to have him as a father-in-law. I feel like I’d have so much to learn from him professionally, and I think he’s a genius. He has so much life experience, and I feel like just seeing him would help me.” Finally, Park Seo Joon shared the unexpected hardest thing about wearing a priest costume for his upcoming film “The Divine Fury.” “The priest costume was extremely tight,” he said. When asked about how it felt to film action scenes in the costume, the actor replied, “Because the collar was fitted and closed, it was definitely a bit stifling.” However, Park Seo Joon added that there were also benefits to wearing the costume. “Just like a man’s demeanor and mindset changes when he puts on a suit, the priest costume had the same effect. It changed my mindset and perspective.”
  12. *** I read that the original source work of his upcoming drama was an incredibly popular hit webtoon that has accumulated more than 200 million views since its debut in 2017. Isn’t that awesome? Has anyone read the webtoon? It might have been so popular. I'm in for PSJ. Finally........he is back on the small screen! His movie "DIVINE FURY" is scheduled to be released 31 July. So much to look forward............ And I can never have enough PSJ! I can't wait! This drama sounds interesting and different. I'll be keeping my eye on this one. I just bought a DVD copy of his drama "Fight My Way" & I still haven't started watching yet. And I almost forgot that he was in "Kill Me, Heal Me" since maybe Ji Sung is the male lead there & not him. It appears Viki has developed a relationship with JTBC so hopefully Viki will license "ITAEWON CLASS."
  13. *** The Chunsa Film Awards are a prestigious institution which recognises the best and brightest of the Korean film industry.

  15. *** Taecyon’s such a good bro! As a standard, there’s an army training completion ceremony after (4) weeks of training. Personnel with no command authority usually bear a title such as Private. These may have a variety of grades, such as private first class, but these usually only reflect variations in pay, not increased authority. The length of service varies depending on the military branch but is usually between 21 and 24 months. President Moon unveiled a five-year plan to scale back the mandatory military service period to 18 months from the current 21. This shortened mandatory military service will not fully take in effect until July 2020. However, those who are currently serving will get a reduction on service length based on their time of enlistment. Starting from October 2018, they will take away 1 day for every 2 weeks up until the enlistment date, eventually to cut down three months from the soldiers’ military duties. Those celebrities who are active duty soldiers will be “reserve duty” after discharge. There is such a thing they call “training for military reservists” (this is for all Korean male become military reserve personnel for 5-7 years after their discharge from their mandatory military service) SKorean military reserve personnel have to undergo training every year whether or not there is tension in the Korean Peninsula. After serving in active duty, Korean men are considered to be serving in an inactive duty. For eight years after the end of service, Korean men are supposed to report for a mandatory training up to 100 hours a year. In case of a war, Korean men in the 8-year period are drafted to fight. Also in case of a war, all Korean men between ages 18 and 45 are drafted for labor mobilization. ****************************************************************** 2PM’s Taecyeon Cheers On Chansung In The Military 2PM’s Taecyeon visited the group’s youngest member Chansung in the military on an important day! Chansung enlisted for his mandatory service on June 11, while Taecyeon was discharged from his service in May. On July 18, the 2PM Instagram shared photos from the day of Chansung’s completion ceremony for his basic training. The caption described how their youngest member had broken out into a huge smile as soon as he saw Taecyeon’s face and they hugged. On Taecyeon’s Twitter, he shared a photo of himself with Chansung. Over on Instagram, he uploaded a video of the ceremony and wrote, “Congratulations on becoming a private!!!!” Taecyeon also laughed over how the video features himself being relaxed, since he was recently discharged and not yet a reservist. Chansung is scheduled to be discharged from the military on January 5, 2021. credit : soompi news
  16. *** TODAY is D-DAY! This will be available on Viki with English subtitles! ********************************************************************* Ji Sung Compares Past Medical Drama “New Heart” To “Doctor John” + Describes Working With Lee Se Young Ji Sung and Lee Se Young shared their thoughts on their drama “Doctor John.” “Doctor John” tells the story of doctors who try to uncover the unknown causes of pain felt by chronically ill patients. On July 18, Ji Sung, Lee Se Young, Lee Kyu Hyung, Hwang Hee, Jung Min Ah, Kim Hye Eun, and Shin Dong Mi attended a press conference for the new SBS series. Ji Sung will portray Cha Yo Han, Hanse Hospital’s youngest anesthesiology professor and the most promising doctor in his field. This is the actor’s first medical drama in 12 years after “New Heart.” He began, “I feel a lot of responsibility. I was a resident in ‘New Heart,’ but I’m appearing as a professor this time. ‘New Heart’ was really meaningful because it was my first project after being discharged from the military. I remember working hard while preparing for it. After completing that drama, I thought, ‘In the future, I should play a professor and not a resident,’ and my dream came true.” He continued, “It’s very meaningful to me. I like hospitals. I like the smell of hospitals and the smell of disinfectants. There’s a feeling of calmness when going to the hospital. I think that it’s a space where there’s the most amount of sincerity in the world. My mind feels comfortable when I go to the hospital, so I felt more excited than when selecting another project.” The actor added, “I’m preparing in various ways to play an anesthesiology professor. I have the mindset of sincerely studying everything I can. I thought that I should be at a point where I can be responsible for what I say in my lines.” “Since I have congenital spondylosis (spinal bone defect), I don’t have bones in certain parts,” revealed Ji Sung. “So I used to exercise for my health, and I could relate [to the drama] a lot since I paid a lot of attention to my health. If someone says their lower back hurts, I have a lot to say as if I’m an anesthesiologist. I can relate to it in terms of maintaining my health, and I like it.” On his teamwork with Lee Se Young, Ji Sung said, “She works really hard in real life. I’m also that way, so I think that I should work hard in order to not cause harm. Lee Se Young is actually my sunbae (senior in the industry). She’s been in this field for a while, so I liked seeing her acting with responsibility. I think I’ve met a really good partner.” “I joined the drama with a joyful heart after hearing that director Jo Soo Won and Ji Sung would be in it,” said Lee Se Young. “I heard that people feel a lot of comfort just for the fact that people sympathize with them during their hard and painful times. I hope that many people will feel comfort and healing while watching our drama.” Lee Kyu Hyung added, “I immediately said that I would be in the drama when I heard that Ji Sung and Lee Se Young would be in it. The script was so easy to read. I liked that it had joys and sorrows while not being provocative.” “Doctor John” premieres on July 19 at 10 p.m. KST, and will be available on Viki with English subtitles!

  17. Hi sky5joyous, thanks for sharing the new teaser. Ohhh.........this one is creepy. I'm curious what is happening in this strange dorm? I'm intrigued. I know he's still currently filming this drama, which premieres on August 31 at 10:30 p.m. KST as the follow-up to “Watcher.” I heard that it has elements of horror. Can't wait to watch it!
  18. ***RAIN posted these slide of stills from his drama just a while ago with a caption - " # Lee, Jae-Sang # - Rain will be taking on the role of the selfish lawyer Lee Jae Sang.
  19. Hi hibiscus, like you I'm not also familiar with the female lead. According to Nielsen Korea, last night EP, July 18 broadcast of the drama recorded 5.1 and 5.2 percent in viewership ratings (a 0.5 point decrease from the previous day).
  20. *** For the female lead of his upcoming drama, “Itaewon Class” will be her first drama. The drama will air beginning of 2020, anytime from January/February. It's a 16 EP drama. For those who don't know yet - Itaewon is a popular neighborhood in Seoul where there are restaurants which serve food from all over the world.
  21. "Doctor John" and "Be Melodramatic" Off to a Bad Start Nowadays, with the changing social attitudes regarding women, the sexist settings and scenes that used to be taken for granted in dramas and movies are showing signs of decreasing gradually. However, among them, there are dramas that have been criticized by internet users even before the show was aired due to the gender consciousness that failed to keep up with social trends. "Doctor John", an SBS drama about anesthesiology and pain medicine doctors coming this 19th, had to revise its character descriptions, as it was criticized for introducing the head nurse as an 'ajumma' on its homepage. Originally, the "Doctor John" production explained the character of Nurse Hong as "Also known as Hong. She's a chatty and fussy ajumma who has to know everything that goes on in the hospital and spreads rumors about them". About Nurse Na, who is 3 years into the job, it explained, "She is in charge of the anesthesiologists' center admissions. She eats a lot, sometimes all day, but her life changes when she meets Doctor John". Internet users responded to this by saying, "The director and writer of this drama obviously have no idea what a nurse does. Do your homework before making the drama", "You need at least 20 years of experience and at least a Masters degree to become a head nurse, but that's what you're calling her? That doesn't make sense. It looks like anyone can be a writer these days" and more. Among them were women's opinions that they were ignoring and holding discriminating views toward nurses, who are mostly women. The term 'ajumma' degenerates a woman's effort and success in getting a high social position. In the end, netizens complained on the bulletin board and "Doctor John" revised certain terms to 'atmosphere maker' and 'grows into'. These dramas haven't even begun yet and they've already caused quite a controversy. (skipped unrelated.....) Source : /news.nate.com/view/2... Translation : Hancinema
  22. *** These supportive acts from LJK towards IU are truly endearing. I guess they have started their closed friendship when they were filming the drama..... LJK is such a very NICE & warm person. ******************************************************************* Lee JoonGi To Make Special Cameo In Drama “Hotel Del Luna” For His Close Friend IU Lee JoonGi and IU‘s friendship is well known among K-Drama lovers. Both actors acted together as the main couple of the popular drama “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” back in 2016. Since then, they have been constantly showing their support and close friendship for each other. They also have visited each fan meeting. Lee JoonGi even appeared with and for IU on “Knowing Bros” in October 2018. On July 18, it was reported that the actor will make a special appearance in episode 3 of IU’s current drama “Hotel del Luna” in support for her. His role can be discovered by viewers in the episode. “Hotel del Luna” is a horror fantasy romantic comedy with IU and Yeo JinGoo. It tells the story of an elite hotelier that gets to run the Hotel del Luna by a fateful event. Because of this, he got to run the hotel with the beautiful and aloof but ill-tempered boss. Hotel del Luna is a hotel in downtown Seoul. For more information, posters, and teaser, you can check our cast and summary here. The episode 3 will air this Saturday, July 20 at 9:00 pm KST on tvN. Are you excited about his cameo? source : https://www.kpopmap.com/lee-joongi-to-make-special-cameo-in-drama-hotel-del-luna-for-his-close-friend-iu/
  23. *** His bromance with Park Seo Joon is still going strong! During Actor & Chatter, Park Seo Joon opened up about the latest news between his close friendships with Park Hyungsik! He revealed that he was finally able to get in touch with Park Hyungsik now that he recently finished his basic training in the military. He contacted PSJ through their group chat with friends. He said that there were 4,300 messages waiting for him in their chatroom alone. Wow, those were many messages to read on. He said that he had a ceremony for the end of his basic training. As a standard, there’s an army training completion ceremony after (4) weeks of training. After training, you’ll be given a leave or day-off for some days before you begin your military service. After this they are assigned to posts and roles. Sigh............spending two years in the barracks or wherever during MS is taxing for anyone not looking to pursue a career in the military. I hope he maintains to be healthy! I hope he finishes his duties safely. His fans are awaiting for his return. Return safely!
  24. *** I don't really like how the drama title sounds, though but I'm bias when it comes to RAIN. I will always give a shot anything for him. *************************************************************** RAIN Gets a Do-over in Poster and Stills for MBC Drama "Welcome 2 Life" LINK here : http://koalasplayground.com/2019/07/17/rain-gets-a-do-over-in-poster-and-stills-for-mbc-drama-welcome-2-life/
